This demonstrates the importance of the subject matter for the global and national governance and human development. It is obvious that the current global crisis is setting a new thinking about the role of migration in development, the necessity of more flexible mechanisms of migration management, and the role of governments in this management.

OUR WORK - POVERTY REDUCTION

Armenia is a lower middle income country with medium human development index (HDI - 0.729). After a period of double digit economic growth of 12 percent between 2001 and 2007, the country was hit by the global crisis in the last quarter of 2008. As a result, GDP dropped by 14.4 percent in 2009.

The economic decline affected the poverty alleviation process and jeopardized the achievement of many of the national Millennium Development Goal targets.
